It is interesting!
I admit that during the first few Chapters, I wasn't sure how well I was going to like this book. Because I wasn't sure if the heroine would be someone I would like. But as I continued reading, things started to move on quickly. And OMG I love it :) It was action pack, with sizzling romance, danger and thrilling emotion ride. Two strong main characters and two men from "Bullet Catchers" firm to love.
Alex Romero is a bodyguard, who was hired by Kimball Parrish, to protect his client Jessica Adams. Instead he ended up protecting the wrong twin sister, when he realized that the unprotected woman he tried to teach a lesson to was Jazz Adams. But he doesn't walk away from her, even when she doesn't want his protection.
Jasmine (Jazz) Adams is private investigator, who is trying to catch the creep who is stalking her twin sister, Jessica. The struggle to find the stalker on her own was difficult, especially with her bodyguard, Alex Romero, seem to think he needed to follow her every moves to help her find her sister. And Jazz did not want his help. But when she uncover a dark mystery, she discover there was something bigger than the stalking and her missing sister. To find the lead to her sister, she must pretend to be Jessica, where she work as TV reporter. Jazz also relied on Alex and the two men from "Bullet Catcher" firm, Max and Dan, to help to find her sister before it too late.
But on the mission, Alex and Jazz can't help but become attracted to one another. And the romance between them became sizzling hot. They fell in love but tried to fight off admitting to it.
What happen at the end was a very thrilling ride to a good ending. There is a small twist to the story. You will also see more on the two Bullet Catcher men, Dan and Max as they get their own story. I think this have been a good read for me since last month. I highly recommend this to anyone if you like series book, actions, strong main characters and good ending. :)
I can't wait to read the second book Thrill Me to Death ! Better published this off or I'll give myself a big aheadache trying to make this review good *sigh*...... *grin*
